As a single woman on a shoestring budget, I am always on the lookout for groceries on sale or special. I find that it’s easier to purchase the food on special first then trawl the Internet for a good recipe for them.
This particular recipe was created by a house guest of mine and has since been a staple of my diet. It is a simple pasta dish for the lazy, busy people.
Any kind of sausages can be used for the base, but I prefer to use the “tainted” vegetarian sausages regularly produced by the local butchers every time they get new apprentices in the shop. Inevitably, someone forgets to clean the sausage machine between runs of meat sausages and vegetarian sausages, thus producing vegetarian sausages that contain meat. The result? Cheap sausages for everyone!
- 2 x sausages
- Some cooked pasta
- 2 carrots, or whatever root vegetable is on sale, sliced
- 1 onion, chopped roughly
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- A few handfuls of leafy vegetables (spinach or kale prefered)
- Some other vegetables (Whatever you like)
- Sliced mushrooms (optional)
First, fry the sausages up in a wok. Once the sausages are browned, remove them from heat and fry the onion and garlic in the sausage grease until translucent. Then add the carrots and fry those up. Then add the leafy vegetables and pasta and fry those up. If you have sliced mushrooms, throw those in too. Then add the sausages again and heat up everything.
And you’re done!
Serve up and eat up.
Simple and quick! ^_^
